  1. I love it, another great addition from Disney/Pixar. Everybody keeps saying it’s not as good as “Finding Nemo” but i have to disagree with that. I recently just have watched Nemo a week before Christmas 2016 & yeah it’s good, i then bought “Finding Dory” as a christmas present for my kids bc they enjoyed nemo so much and kept asking for it, so, after just a week of watching the 1st we watched the sequel and i have to say that we liked and enjoyed “Finding Dory” as much as “nemo”. I found that both films are fun and visually appealing with a decent storyline to go along with it. Dory happened to be our favorite fish from the first one so to create a movie surrounded around her and finding her family was a perfect sequel, imo. i really enjoyed the glimpse at the beginning into the past when Dory was just a tiny babe with her parents and her triggered flashbacks that led us on a fun journey. Lastly, i think that the title works just fine and found it to be very fitting for the movie. Its a great animated film and it has done what it’s suppose to do, entertain my children and as a bonus entertained me as well.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Diane. I agree; I’m not sure what the recent backlash (including snubbing it for an Oscar nomination) is all about regarding Finding Dory. I don’t think it’s as good as Nemo, but I don’t think it’s a big step behind. Much more of a Toy Story sequel than the Cars or Monsters sequels. I absolutely loved it and I’m glad you did too.
